Nuncio D'Errico visits Croatian Baptist Aid
Zagreb, July 6th, 2017 – Apostolic nuncio’s meeting with the director of the Baptist humanitarian organization Croatian Baptist Aid
His Excellency, the Apostolic nuncio in the Republic of Croatia, Alessandro D’Errico, visited the headquarters of the Baptist humanitarian organization Croatian Baptist Aid in Radićeva 30, Zagreb where he had a friendly conversation with the director of the organization, Toma Magda and the general secretary of the Croatian Baptist Union, pastor Željko Mraz. As this was also a farewell visit, because His Excellency D’Errico was named Apostolic nuncio in Malta, the participants spoke about the period of excellent cooperation between the Baptist and Roman Catholic church in the field of humanitarian work, especially during the migrant crisis in Croatia.
They talked about today’s needs and the problems of migrants and asylum seekers in Croatia, as well as the humanitarian work that Croatian Baptist Aid is doing daily in the center for the asylum and international protection seekers Porin, Zagreb.
The Nuncio commended the work of the Croatian Baptist Aid and the selfless help that the organization and its workers have been giving to the refugees; he also emphasized the importance of helping those people.
As a thank you for the visit, director Toma Magda gave His Excellency D’Errico an official shirt with the logo of the Croatian Baptist Aid as a gift and a token of remembrance of this meeting.
